    What will the pricing on the 15mm polisher be? I would rather have it as I do not want to replace all my 5.5" pads.

    Are you being serious ank? Your worried about $100 worth of pads and not the $8 million in waxes.

    sorry for the delay, as many have said already this machine rocks in just about every way I have about 5 cars on it now.

    the biggest surprise is it feels like your doing absolutely nothing, as well its much easier on the body. I love it and would recommend it, the guys in the shop are fighting to get it out of my hands LOL

    I used the 15 this weekend, needless to say I'm getting it. Extremely smooth, although the machine is a little heavy, you do not notice when operating it.

    do you use it the same way you would a griots or regular orbital? What one do you reccomend more the 21 or the 15
  13. Frankastic

    yes you would use it the same way, but these machines are much more aggressive, so caution is needed. The 21 is more for flat panels IMO, and 15 is for cure panels IMO.

    please read KB thread for more info

    yes you would, the 21mm is what we are using right now, our 15mm will be on its way.

    I've been running my LHR21 on speed 4-5 with light to moderate pressure on cutting steps and slowing it down for finishing.

    Curious to see what others have been using though....

    Looks really good Phil, surprising the MF pad finished down that well, especially on SS paint (I think?)
